"Music is best introduced during the morning. When children are still "working," but the teacher or adult feels that a "change of atmosphere" would be welcome, she clears part of the room, goes to the piano, and starts to play. Some children will interrupt whatever they are doing and joyfully move to the music; others, more cautious, will watch for a while before joining; other may just remain "hearers."  There is no urging by anyone to join.  Dr. Montessori's attitude to formal group-teaching was expressed most clearly one day: she attended a dancing class for small children and remarked, "This reminds me of canaries in a cage." p vii.},
